Old Castle Fort Tripoli

Posted by Picasa

The old castle fort at Tripoli is pretty much the same now as it was in this photo, and when Mussolini addressed the crowd from the same ramparts that Ghadafi spoke to his supporters during the early days of the revolution against him.

It's also pretty much the same as it was in 1803-4 when the prisoners of the captured frigate USS Philadelphia were kept in its dungeons, and during World War II when the Green Square was occupied at various times by the Italians, Germans, British and Americans.
